"The next big thing"

Current Employee - Senior Applications Engineer in Bellevue, WA
Current Employee - Senior Applications Engineer in Bellevue, WA
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

Young and nimble company. Willing to try things out and if they don't work not afraid to drop non productive initiatives. Very data driven, management makes decisions based more on data then on feelings. The general employee population is a higher caliber person highly skilled in the area they are responsible. Feels like a small company but has the infrastructure and support systems of a larger company.

Cons

There is a little left over baggage from some acquisitions that need to be better integrated into the whole company. Some teams don't like to at least look at ways process could improve the business so there is a limit to how much a good process can be repeated.

Advice to Management

Take the time to bring in simple repeatable processes.

    Pros

    1. The prestige and fast growth of the company looks great on your resume.
    2. You get really high access to the company's inner workings.
    3. The environment is so fun.

    Cons

    1. They demand too much in-office time from interns.
    2. It's easy to fall into the "give it to the free intern" slump of doing menial work.

    Advice to Management

    Yes, you are a "fun" and "young" office. Don't forget that your young interns are only a couple years younger than many of your employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of new projects and ideas to work on. This company has great potential, and Richard is a good innovator of ideas.

    Cons

    This place has some of the worst political drama that I have ever seen, Most of the management believes in lying to the employees, and constantly play against one another, the management in Ca never comes to the bellevue office to check up on this branch, please, please do not work here.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time addressing the needs of your employees, the Bellevue office handles the registrar side of the business, this is your cash-cow, take it seriously and show the employees in that office that you value them.
